Authenticating outbound HTTP connections | HCL Digital Experience

You can protect the access to the remote host by an authentication mechanism.

About this task

For several authentication mechanisms, the outbound HTTP connection infrastructure provides an internal authentication support. By this support, the outbound HTTP connection service can handle the authentication protocol that is run by built-in authentication handlers. The outbound HTTP connection service supports the following authentication types:
  • HTTP basic authentication
  • HTTP digest authentication
  • SPNEGO authentication
  • Single Sign-On (SSO) by using LTPA tokens
  • Form-based authentication.
